Roxy and Apollo napping during Blizzard of Feb 2011

I’m an empty nester, except for my hubby and one Rottweiler.  Sadly, on March 11, 2012, our loveable ditzy female Rottweiler Roxy (pictured above on the left) passed away.  Apollo (above on the right), our male mix (Rottweiler and something else, possibly a Shepherd), misses her as do Terry and I. *

* Summer 2012 Update:  We adopted a female Rottweiler in late July.  Her name is Alexis, but we call her Lexy.

I’ve lived in Kansas all my life, but may eventually migrate south to join my kids in Texas.

I’m an avid reader and so you will see many books reviews here.  Click here for my definition of a five star rating scale.  I also occasionally quest and campaign on Aardwolf, an online text-based MUD.  I am an amateur astronomer, sometimes a competitive Scrabbler, love to bake bread, especially various varieties of sourdoughs, and when I’m really bored (or when it’s really cold outside), I crochet.

    Hi there! I got your blog address from Rachelle, whom I’ve met through university choral things (my husband conducts/teaches/administrates there). I’ve barely had a chance to look around your site yet, but what I’m seeing I enjoy immensely, so I’m looking forward to much more!
    Best,
    Kathryn

  2. Beautiful looking dogs. You crocheted that? It puts the professor to shame. They’re lovely.

  3. Hi! I found your blog through Goodreads. I like how you review books and movies! Oh, and I love Rottweilers! And that’s a beautiful scarf and hat! God bless!
